Faculty Affairs and Academic Reviews During COVID: Advice for Going Digital

Webinar at 2 p.m. ET

Faculty and academic affairs personnel showed their resilience and innovation in 2020. 

During this webinar, panelists from Elizabeth City State University (N.C.), San Francisco State University, and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will discuss how their institutions’ faculty evaluations were affected by COVID. They will also share takeaways from their use of Interfolio’s Review, Promotion & Tenure platform.

The panelists will address these questions:

  • How have institutions balanced the needs of faculty and administrators?
  • What process changes made during the pandemic might become the new normal? 

Attendees will also hear innovative ways institutions use software for other workflow- and committee-driven processes during COVID and beyond.
